Our Mission

Playways Day Nursery & Pre-School is a small, family-run day nursery. We are an independent nursery with an EYFS based environment dedicated to the children’s individual needs and a healthy active lifestyle. With expertise, dedication and care, the team strive to give every child the best start in their early years.

Playways Day Nursey aims to:

  • Maintain a challenging environment which stimulates and prepares children for life through exciting and inspiring, free and structured play.
  • Support diversity and recognise that every child is an individual and unique. We nurture individuality and develop our children’s confidence to ensure every child feels safe and secure.
  • We incorporate four key values into our nursery alongside the British Values: Family partnerships, Community, Working Together: Learning Together and Healthy and active lifestyles.
  • To stimulate and broaden experiences which help the children progress successfully and fullfil their potential. We encourage the children to care about others, learn about the world around them and enable them to be school ready.


Our Values

Family and Community: We believe in being an extension to the family and being a home from home environment, working in partnership with parents and carers and supporting families through these crucial early years.


Learning together: We believe that learning never stops and support our children and families to develop dispositions to enable them to be effective lifelong learners. We have developed a learning community where we are all learners, recognising that it is ok to make mistakes.


Active Lifestyles: We believe all children should have fun, learn and take risks through active and healthy lifestyles.


Our vision is to provide a safe, happy, caring, secure and stimulating environment for your child to enable all children to develop their capabilities as successful learners, confident individuals and to enjoy being adventurous, active and healthy.
